You won't have to wait much longer to see "The Avengers" in action, at least if you're reading this from the United States of Captain America. Of course, if you're anywhere else in the world, you've probably already seen it, and bully for you!

For the time being, you can get a glimpse of one of this epic superhero fights in this superhero extravaganza right now, with commentary from director/writer Joss Whedon. Find out what happens when Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr., natch) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) try and beat the heck out of each other.

What happens when a smart aleck in a spiffy metal suit fights the Mighty Thor of Asgard? Lots of lightning and hammer time, some serious damage to Tony Stark's outfit, and plenty of collateral damage.

"Thor is really losing it," Whedon explains. "Like, he's really losing his temper. By the end of the fight, he's seeing red, and that explains the escalation of the thing, and then it helped me work with Chris to make the fight go somewhere and not just be a series of blows."

Of course, Hemsworth is the one we're really checking out in this scene, if only because, well, he's the only one we can really see.

"Chris did most of the heavy lifting there because you can see his face," Whedon says. "Once you put the armor on [Iron Man], Robert is sitting in his trailer going, 'Uh…' Chris's physicality, his intensity is extraordinary." Yeah, it is! It also sort of sounds like Whedon says, "he has the sexiest face," which is also true.
